    Ross hit on one of the fundamental problems with oWoD with his antivaxer thing. White Wolf had a way of insisting that the MAN just, like, wanted to take your individuality away, MAN, but they were writing in an era that was the blossoming of what would become an unprecedented age of being able to be more “yourself” than anyone ever could before, thanks to the internet. it’s really hard to say that modern society is a crushing, homogenizing force when it’s the loudest megaspeaker ever handed to the voiceless ever. oWoD had a very YOU’RE NOT MY REAL DAD, DAD attitude toward being a rebel. there was one way to do it, and if you weren’t doing it that way, you were part of the -system,- which was always and forever bad no matter what.

    There’s no objectivity in how the oWoD categorized Bad Things That Harm The Soul of The Universe from Good Things That Are Dying and Must Be Protected.

    If it was something the game designer disliked, it was bad and if it was something the designer liked, it was good.

    All oWoD games are like this to some degree.

    I truly enjoy this series because in my mind I am Faust. Coming from a similar place of ignorance to the OWoD, my inner dialogue mirrors his incredulity at the convoluted setting of this system.
